    I worked at Endo Pharmaceuticals full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    If you like you're sales manager(s), (which I did), this was a great place to work. Some of the best sales reps I have ever met worked here. Learned allot about pain management that helped me later in a new position.

    Cons

    Fear of layoffs............................constantly. Managed care is always a tricky issue. Nothing in the pipeline, everything has gone generic. When we became a "device" company the writing was on the wall for the pharmaceutical side.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What happened to our pipeline? :(

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with people from diverse Philly area Pharma companies. Generally pay well

    Cons

    New management team cares little about employee morale. Considers everyone replaceable, especially if they are highly experienced (read that as "highly paid")

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This isn't Valeant and you will lose some good people with the callous attitude. BTW, Dave Holveck is no longer CEO, now is Rajiv De Silva.

    Dictators run the company. Back stabbers, no work life balance, self centered management, take short cuts, you get the picture! Stay away from this Company...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People, People, People are your assets. Try to be a human for a change and have some values...it's new management style.

    I have been working at Endo Pharmaceuticals as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    I can say this with more than confidence, there is nothing here!!!!!

    Cons

    DOOOOO NOT! work here!!!! if you work here only thing you going to do is regret everyday that you got hired. This company is overrated can't believe this is pharmaceuticals industry. Packaging is the worse area to get hired in, bad management and rude line leads that think they can speak to you how ever they feel.

    stop hiring children, and watch your mouth when talking to employees

    I worked at Endo Pharmaceuticals full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    People friendly, great benefit and very good collaboration among groups attracts employee to work here. The first company I ever worked, who includes previous work experience and offer paid time off (PTO) based on total year of services.

    Cons

    Lack of communication / understanding between corporate level and managements of different sites. Needs to organize and plan efficiently for company growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should seek and evaluate suggestions from grass root level employee before taking any major decision. Management should also lift certain bar of qualification (degree) to retain some real brilliant, dedicated, innovative employee.

    Pros

    Salary, benefits, bonus and perks were great. Training and business improvement initiatives. Exposure to latest and greatest technology across operating units. Expertise of IT team. Valiant efforts at performance management. It's pharma, so generally a well-educated and motivated group.

    Cons

    Cliquey. JnJ/Centocor people had an exclusive vibe. Operational support burden made managing projects a stretch

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep a close eye on young/new managers.

    Pros

    Good flexibility, good pay, good benfits

    Cons

    Limited pipeline, not o a lot of original thought or direction in senior management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expand the pipeline and retain talented individuals instead of cutting positions. Trim fat by losing low contributors not just focusing on job roles.
